The film was first shown in Dublin on March 8th 1985 in the Ambassador Theatre. It went on to become a hugely popular phenomenon which literally transformed the cinema into a dancefloor as punters left their seats and danced/ran around the auditorium. It was screened every weekend for over 4 months in 1986 and has been written about by journalists, writers and music critics ever since.
